Flat Track Advisory Board
Riders, team owners and tuners make up the new AMA Pro Racing Flat Track competition advisory board. Their goal is to enhance communication and collaboration throughout the paddock. The seven members are: Kenny Coolbeth Jr., Craig Rogers, Joe Kopp, Jeff Gordon, Mike Scott, Dick Weirbach and Craig Parkinson.

Defecting to Flat Track
Three-time Ducati Team World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss and his teammate Johnny Lewis will compete in the 2015 AMA Pro Grand National Flat Track Series.

Bayliss retired from full-time competition in 2008, but he still actively promotes Ducati. In 2013, he promoted a by-invitation-only flat-track race in his native Australia. The plan is to compete in the five Mile races on the schedule, starting with Springfield.

Flat Track at the X Games
The inaugural X Games Harley-Davidson Flat Track race is by invitation only. The lucky ones will have a chance of earning gold at ESPN’s X Games Austin, at the Circuit of the Americas.

Aside from the gold medal, the winner will receive a brand-new Harley Street 750. The event will be held on Thursday, June 4, and is scheduled to air on ESPN at 9 p.m. EST.
